Complainant Name:
Mrs Sarah Catt

Clauses Noted: 1, 3, 4, 9

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mrs Sarah Catt complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article reporting on her court case which intruded into her privacy in breach of Clause 3 (Privacy) of the Editors' Code of Practice; named unrelated members of her family in breach of Clause 9 (Reporting of Crime) of the Code; and contained inaccuracies in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Code. She also complained that the newspaper had breached Clause 4 (Harassment) of the Code.

Resolution:

While the newspaper did not accept a breach of the Code, the complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the online article, and the placing of a note on the newspaper's files with respect to future reporting of the matter.
